jsx-quotes

Enforce the consistent use of either double or single quotes in JSX attributes

🛠 Fixable

Some problems reported by this rule are automatically fixable by the --fix command line option

JSX attribute values can contain string literals, which are delimited with single or double quotes.

<a b='c' />
<a b="c" />

Unlike string literals in JavaScript, string literals within JSX attributes can’t contain escaped quotes. If you want to have e.g. a double quote within a JSX attribute value, you have to use single quotes as string delimiter.

<a b="'" />
<a b='"' />
